Lauryn Hill-Every Ghetto, Every City
Talk about being thankful! Lauryn Hill’s memories are about growing up in New Jersey, but these lyrics transcend just one person’s reminiscence. I think everyone who grew up in the 80s and 90s can find something in this song to relate to, and bring a smile to their face. This song-besides being catchy as anything-underscores the need to look back and remember where you came from, and to never forget what it was like to be a younger you, and try your best to hold on to that childhood feeling that all is right with the world and things will be okay.
